I love the V&A and this was a great event with some truly innovative and creative ideas brought to life. My favourites being the drawing robot arm and the brain wave machine, which I still don’t entirely understand.
I was really looking forward to seeing this exhibition at the Science Museum, but it wasn’t all I’d hoped it would be. I suppose that in many ways it wasn’t geared towards me at all, but an audience for whom a web based sequencer would be completely fresh idea.
A couple of weeks ago now I made another visit to the Science Museum’s Oramics exhibition. I really like this small exhibition. It is quite unusual and they keep adding new items to it and changing it slightly, which is one of the reasons I keep coming back. I think I’ve been to it 4 times now.
I like how everything from her work is linked forward to how electronic music has developed. It’s interesting to see the progression and understand where things came from.
I almost certainly will go back again if I get the chance.
The Science Museum is, and always has been, one of my favourite places, and in many ways, largely for the space exhibits, which are still amazing.
I didn’t even know that this exhibition was on at the Science museum, and I was only really there for Music day, so it was a real bonus to see it. Some nice exhibits and a lot of information packed into a very small space. I think I’ll need to see it again at least once if not more times.
Mr Turing would have been 100 years old today. His legacy to computing is amazing, there’s no doubt about that. I went to a big celebration at Bletchley Park in 2009 where I learnt a lot about him and what he’d done. Back in 2009 you didn’t hear so much about him and his work, I’m glad that’s changed.
Today I went to an exhibition about him at the Science Museum, and whilst it was only a small exhibition it’s good to see the recognition.
I heard about this a few weeks ago and was attracted to it because of the stuff connected to Factory Records, but actually there was loads more there. In fact there’s almost too much in this exhibition, and not enough, it that makes any sense at all.
It almost leaves you wanting lots more in every category. I loved the mini, but then wanted to see a load more vintage and classic cars, and the Jag was great I have to admit. The games stuff and the ZX Spectrum just fueled my craving for a Speccy and a ZX81.
I can see myself visiting this exhibition again in a few weeks as there’s too much to take in with one visit. But it’s well worth a look as is the V&A as a whole.
Peter Davidson’s Tardis, Melcor, Giant Robot … Doesn’t get better does it?
Having seen the Oramics exhibition again I thought I’d spend some time with the Oramics app again as I haven’t used it in ages. I think that the first time I used it I didn’t really get the hang of it, but playing with it this morning I really enjoyed it. I think I might record some pieces from it too.
The next three Dalek models. I’d never seen this first one, the specials weapons dalek before. Not surprising though as it was a Sylvester McCoy episode, and I hardly watched any of his stories.
Another series of photos from the Doctor Who Experience. The Daleks were great. These are just the first four, all of which I knew of as I’m sure you do too.
Some more pictures from the Doctor Who Experience yesterday. There was a great display of Cybermen heads from the first in the 1960′s. Most but not all were replicas. Great to see how the Cybermen have changed over time though.
I went to the Doctor Who Experience yesterday, which was great fun, and I took loads of photographs, so expect quite a few posts with a ‘Who’ theme.
These pictures are a bunch of Radio Times covers featuring Doctor Who, and I thought they looked great. I’d forgotten some of the old logos from the Radio Times as well.
